very good introductory course. i enjoyed the assignments, they are not overwhelming, easy to start, and the optional ones offer great opportunity to dig little deeper into graphic design fundamentals.

Very interesting, I liked the format. Easy to follow, nice excercises. It's actually good to cover the basics of design, even if you are not an absolute beginner, and especially if you are self taught

It's been fun! As the name suggest, it really is a fundamental course meant for beginners. I find the typography week to be most informative.

Overall great course. Some knowledge Adobe Illustrator and file formatting needed.
The Audio is out of sink from the video on many lessons.

It's described as "fundamentals" and that's it. Very basic. Everything is well explained. In my opinion, it could be a little more in depth.

Great introduction course. I wish there were links to relevant literature on the topics. Some exercise formulations are not instantly clear.

A very good overview of graphic design - for someone just want an intro, can just take this course rather than the whole specification.

Quite interesting and enjoyed it well enough! I was expecting it to be more computer based, but the principles were still of interest.

A great course to learn to design. It's not a software course, which is perfect. Just what I needed it. Unfortunately, it's too short.

The last assignment could have been more interesting. I think the optional assignment would have been a better closure to the course.

Online courses are challenging. I would recommend examples for the homework assignments. The videos do not detail what is expected.

I really enjoyed it, but I thought some of the instructions were a bit vague and required some guesswork. Overall, a solid course.

Great course overall, but you area really learning on your own. Hard to get critical/in-depth feedback about assignments.

Covers the topic very well, but keep in mind that it's only an intro. The focus is on introducing concepts and language.

Very basic introduction to the ground floor of Graphic Design. Get in, get it done, get out. I like how precise it was.

very important for both new designer, who want to enrich their knowledge, and experienced designers, as a refresher.

Good course for learning the basics of graphics design. More professional / business related topics could be added.
